I'll take another pic later and edit this post but the tires were wicked hard to get on. The bead seemed a tiny bit big? But this is my first time baking tires off. And I just used original foams for now. Might replace with some homemade foams I like to make out of ac window sealer foam. But I have too many projects right now for that.

Gear Head UTE 1.9 delrin wheels do not clear the portal axles, though its not off by much.
The fitment is so close its not a full on rub it just grazes it a tiny bit. They will spin mostly free but snag a tiny bit on a out of round portion of the wheel.

I opted to file down the portals because I had such a hard time picking wheels. I only had to file 1mm off the portals at the most if that.







File here where the blue tape is (bolts were scraped by me not wheels)


When done

I even used the optional 1/8" wheel spacer which didn't provide enough clearance, though they did give more space to the bolts which were extremely close without them.
But they can be made to work if you really want them.

The screw wasn't really the issue, it was rubbing the plastic portal axle housing, but it came within a hair of the screws without the wheel spacer. The bolts are scraped up because I was careless when I filed away the plastic housing, not the wheels fault.

I picked up some X Spede 1.9 wheels and they seem to clear the portal axles without issue. As soon as I decide which tires to run they will be installed.

Does anyone have an opinion whether Gear Head Tombstone wheels will fit the TRX or not?

I hate to spend $170 and wait on shipping just to return them if they don't fit. Of course, I could use ultra wide hubs to space them away from the portals but that will ruin the scale looks.

Does anybody have experience with these wheels?

Hi people. New here and expecting for my TRX-4 (in fedex hands). I live in Venezuela and some times is not easy, but here I'm.

Reading this thread sounds me some alarms and the best way is ask ;) so here I go

I buy for the TRX-4 the RC4WD Raceline Monster 1.9" Beadlock Wheels:
  • OD: 1.9in / 48.26mm
  • Center Hole OD: 0.15in / 4mm
  • Width: 1.08in / 27.5mm
  • Negative Offset: 0.5in / 12.8mm
The idea is use with the Pit Bull RC PB9003NK 1.9 Rock Beast Scale Crawler with Komp Kompound


Is good, some clearance problems? Any help is appreciate a lot. Thanks in advance

Can anyone confirm if rc4wd Part# Z-w0129 will fit with no mods? Are these a beadlock?

Currently waiting on a set of Torch - 1.9" Traxxas TRX-4 Aluminum Bead Lock Wheel Set | JConcepts. From what I have heard from a Facebook post they fit just fine with no modifications. I will update with some photos when I get them in and mounted.

Yeah, they are, especially that price point for a full set of 4. Might even go ahead and get the weighted rings at some point, though I am not the biggest fan of having weight in the wheels because it just creates more stress on the drive train.

I find it funny how Jconcepts originally was asking $110 for those wheels as a pair (check on amain) and now they are $70 for a set of 4.

I just installed mine yesterday, and the hub centers are 4mm (I'll be calling them on monday and letting them know),
I drilled them out with a 15/64" bit and they fit fine after that. clear the portals with 1mm to spare from the top two screws.
i opted to use the included 1mm hub spacer too.

I picked up the set of 4 wheels and the set of 4 wheel weights too, shipped for $92

the wheel weights add 70 grams or 2.45 ounces per wheel.

mounted the wheels in some hyrax tires, damn they are sexxxy

No worries, glad to see that they work. Too bad they won't fit the axle's without drilling out the center. Perchance any idea if they will fit VP SLW Hubs. I mean, looking at them it looks like they should, just not sure about the hole spacing for mounting the hubs they already have. If they do fit SLW Hubs, that would be great because they do not require drilling out and I already have a set of them laying around. Either way though, glad to see they will accommodate the portals without any issues.

i'll call them tomorrow and find out if they just happened to have the wrong hubs in the bag, since they claim they are direct bolt on fit.
i did not want to drill them, but after a bit i just said screw it, i have a nice new set of bits and it only took about 5 seconds a wheel.

they do look like the slw hubs may work ?
i just went and measured with some calipers and the shoulder that sticks through the face of the wheel is 10mm and measuring the lugs directly across from each other are 16.5mm c to c. * thats approximate since the wheels are mounted on truck and hard to get true center of hex holes in screws. but its close enough.

Cool, I will give the SLW Hubs I have lying around a shot when I get the wheels in and let yall know if they work out correctly. Don't have the screws to mount though, so I will just see if the holes line up, unless the screws for these wheels use the same size hardware. Would fix all of the mounting issues these have .

Can anyone confirm which of the Vanquish Products Method wheels fit or clear the portals? I am looking for the same width as the stock OEM wheels. I do not want them really any wider or narrower. I want to use the stock OEM tires with them.

I actually contacted Amain about the price discrepancy and they said it was because they come with the weighted rings . Though they did have a look at Jconcepts website after I mentioned it and said that they seem to be discontinued and will likely be having a steep discount on them soon. My guess is they will Discount the one's they have, and than go order them again at the new price and of course the weights will be a separate cost.

Weight rings made of gold?
